Corporate Bonds


Seeking Yield Outside of Uncle Sam

Many see the backbone of fixed-income investing as the 10-year Treasury note, which is risk-averse, but hasn’t offered much yield lately – for the past 12 months, its yield has been 2.4% or lower (Sep, 2013). For many investors, an attractive risk/reward middle ground between government debt and picking winning stocks may be corporate bonds, which seek to provide higher yields than Treasuries, but may appear to be a more stable investment opportunity than equities. Investors can also turn up the potential yield by adding or overweighting “junk” bonds, which have higher risk than investment-grade corporate bonds. This motif provides exposure to ETFs that hold investment grade and high-yield corporate bonds, and is also designed to reduce interest-rate risk by including bond ETFs of diverse maturity timeframes.
